We have a couple of hundred oracle on vmware instances, all Linux, mix of RAC and standalone, and they work fine.

Now, none of these are production, they're dev/test environments, but we don't have any difficulties, aside from some issues we had with the NICs on the servers we were using.

Not entirely true. Oracle still supports their database no matter where it's installed (as long as it's licensed). They are much pickier about where their responsibility ends and the other applications begin.

Is anyone running Oracle (10g) on VMWare? Have you had any difficulties? We are considering placing some production systems on VMWare so that we can better control resources consumed by individual applications. We have completed an install and have been monitoring the database to ensure that there aren't any problems with running an "empty" database (backup, memory, etc) as a proof-of-concept for a couple of weeks now so we know that it can be done.
